Small, high performance sub notebookshave become cheaper and more powerful above the past few years.Consumers can acquire models up to Core i5-520UM, which takes turboboost to a consumer level. For business individual who have somewhatdeeper pockets, Intel has the more powerful Core i7-640LM in store.

Nobody can afford an i7-sub notebookand with the early hand, the functioning of the i5 - 520 UM islimited. Therefore why not bring a quality laptop processor rather ACore i3-350 M, would be best as it is cheap to purchase and quickeras compared to the i5-520UM.
